This home had everything that we needed for a weekend away from it all. It was better in person than it was in the pictures, and the views from the porch are wonderful. It was far enough away from Asheville that we felt secluded, but not far enough from the highway that it wasn't easy to get there. Our hostess was truly wonderful and welcoming, her freshley baked cinnamon muffins were delightful in the mornings :) Would recommend staying here!

Beautiful views and Great location

  • 5 of 5

My family and I chose to stay at this cabin over the weekend because of its views and location. We were in town for a weekend of baseball at UNC Asheville and found that this cabin was just far enough away from the hustle and bustle of downtown Asheville but close enough to get us there in 20 mins. The views of the mountains and peacefulness of the surroundings made this cabin a relaxing place to come home to. The cabin was extremely comfortable in every way. We will definitely consider staying here again.

Plenty of space for a family of four. Location is excellent to all your mountain vacation locations. Very clean, comfortable, and up to date appliances and amenities. Nancy's homemade muffins and fresh ground coffee were a delicious treat. Definitely going to be staying here again!
